Otter Lake makes your trip to reach us as easy as a float on the river. The park is located in the Pocono Mountains, just ten (10) miles from the Delaware Water Gap, Interstate 80, and Stroudsburg. We offer easy access from both Interstate highways 80 and 84, yet all of the seclusion and quiet of a remote camping retreat. Probably the best part of camping at Otter Lake is our direct proximity to so many of the most popular Pocono attractions, many only minutes away!
Before you decide to camp with us, please read the following rules.
These rules have been designed, and are enforced, in order to insure everyone’s enjoyment.
Anyone who does not comply with our rules will be asked to leave.
Quiet Time: Quiet time is from 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM. During these hours all children must be on a campsite and in the company of their parents or another responsible adult. After 11:00 PM, all public areas of the campground are closed and cars may only be used to enter or leave the campground. All noise must confined to the campsite. If you, your radio, or your TV can be heard from the next site or the road, you are too loud.
Personal Transportation: Bicycles and Roller Blades are permitted. They may be used during daylight hours only. We do not allow skate boards, motorized bikes, or golf carts.
Motor Vehicles: All vehicles must be registered, insured and driven by licensed drivers! This includes mopeds. Motorcycles may only be ridden to a campsite and when leaving the campground.
Pets: Quiet pets are permitted. All pets must be kept on a leash and cleaned up after. Pets may not be left unattended.
Campsites: The size of each site campsite is determined by the size of the gravel pad and driveway. All of your camping equipment and vehicles must fit in these areas. You may not use the woods or brush area in between or behind sites for camping equipment or parking.
Trees and Firewood: You may not cut down any trees! You may not drive nails into them break off branches or in any way harm a tree. You may bring your own firewood or buy it here.
Firearms and Fireworks: We do not allow BB guns or any other type of firearm. We do not allow fireworks.
Alcohol: The legal drinking age in Pennsylvania is 21 years of age and will be strictly enforced. Alcoholic beverages are only allowed on campsites. You may not drink any alcohol in any public areas of the campground.
Spring and Fall Reservations: Spring and Fall Reservations are accepted for 2 or more nights with a $70.00 deposit, except for Memorial Day and Columbus Day weekends, where they are reserved for 3 nights and require a $100.00 deposit.
Summer Reservations: All non-lakefront advance summer reservations (June 24 to September 5) are accepted for a minimum of 5 nights and require a $150.00 deposit. There is a 7 night minimum for all Lakefront campsites from June 24 to September 5, requiring a deposit of $150.00. An additional deposit may be required for longer reservations. If you want to stay for less than 5 nights, please call a few days prior to your planned arrival date. If we have an available campsite, we will reserve one for you.
Deposits may be paid using Visa or MasterCard, cash, or personal check, if there is sufficient time. The deposit will hold the campsite until 10:00 PM on your arrival date, unless the reservation is reconfirmed by phone. If we do not have the deposit within 10 days of the date the reservation was made, the reservation will be cancelled. Written confirmation is sent when there is sufficient time. Your deposit is your promise that you will be here on the date you specify for the length of time that you specify. It is also our promise to save a campsite for the dates you specify. Specific campsites may be requested, and we will try our best to accommodate your request; however, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we cannot positively guarantee specific campsites. All campsite balances are due upon arrival and can be paid using cash, a debit card, Visa or MasterCard only. (Checks are not accepted at the time of check-in.) The maximum number of people on one campsite is 7, and only 4 of these 7 people allowed may be adults. There is also a limit of 2 cars per site.
Cancellations and Date Changes
For a refund of your deposit, to transfer the deposit to another date, or to change the arrival or departure date, we require 20 days notice. Before any money is refunded, you must either send in the mail, e-mail or fax us — at (570) 223-0124 — a note saying that you have cancelled. There is a $6.00 fee. If the reservation dates are changed and we are able to re-rent the site for the original length of stay, we will move you to another site. We do understand that sometimes a reservation must be cancelled because of a circumstance that is beyond your control. Unfortunately the campsite was held, and therefore no exceptions will be made.
